The Georgia General Assembly wrapped up it’s 2-year session in April. Science was present in some bills and absent in others.
On Aug 16, 2022 we hosted a Legislative Roundup. We went over the 21-22 session and then spend a majority of the time in breakout rooms working to understand the thoughts and opinions of members of the science and friend-of-science community.
The goal of this Roundup was to understand what our community and partners care about and how they would like to be involved! We want gathered input on concrete things that the S&T community believes will have a positive impact on Georgia’s future. These things will be used to inform our goals for 2023 and subjects to address in a speaker series, conference, or roundtable.
Later on, we will host a “how to advocate effectively” and “our goals for 2023-24” – to provide concrete things to act on and methods for you to be involved.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, we will not be endorsing any candidates in the election, and we will not be endorsing specific bills. We will be advocating for evidence-based solutions.
